Hi,
There are no chances of reduction in his numbers,Use glass continuously to stop increase in numbers.
Some time due to less development of eye ball in comparison of eye socket one gets numbers but this gives plus numbers and chance of normal eye is possible but in your case numbers will remain life long.
Give him Green veg,salads,fresh fruits and vitamin A and other vitamin supplements.

I m a 55 year old female. Yesterday I experienced seeing circles in my peripheral vision in both eyes. It happened once before 2 years ago for 5 minutes or so. This time it lasted almost an hour. I saw them with my eyes both open and closed. I ve also noticed a change in my vision in the past 6 months or so. I now needing glasses for small print. My doctor suggested an MIR. What are your thoughts.

I had 2 twisted intestine surgeries-removed ascending colon and top part going across, secum and part of small intestine. Is it possible now that my body is not able to absorb vitamins, minerals and healthy foods I'm eating? I have had 3 neck surgeries where the bones involved are not healing and I wonder if this is a reason why. I take 3,ooo IU's of vitamin D and eat a diet rich in calcium.I rarely eat meat but I do eat some salmon and chicken, and take fiber daily. I'm 59 , weigh 125, 4 ft 5 1/2 in, am relatively healthy besides this-take daily meds for migraines, have IBS(constipation) scoliosis so I walk for exercise, and have fibromyalgia which is under control.

Hi sir, I don’t want to bother u with details, I just want o share my illness, I am 18 now and I am a victim of the guillian burr syndrome or GBS, when I was 12, as I turned 15 it strucked again, the doctors in my country aren’t specialized enough and I cant afford for an abroad treatment, in visits the neuro doctor gave me some pills which contains, vitamin A, B1, B6, B12, and Zinc. However I don’t feel well, some time, and a constant fear runs in my mind is being sick another time, which can really hamper my studies and my personal life. Though I look fine but I really don’t know what to do. I am 92 kgs of weight, and sometime I have muscle aches, and other kinds of muscular illness, I masturbate a lot which I think that refers to my back pain. Apart from that and all these sir what can I do to prevent this life threatening illness to show up again.
